Those of us who live in a place with four distinct seasons are extremely fortunate and are able to dress accordingly without having to overthink or stress about outfit changes throughout the day. If anyone is like me, who lives in a hot, dry desert- our winters don’t normally come until late November or early December (no shame in wearing sweaters to fake the fall/ winter seasons). Even though the eagerness to feel the cold, brisk air on your face may seem far away, we should take the time to plan accordingly and stock up on affordable and fashionable winter coats! Coats and jackets opt for great layering methods and they add an extra level of togetherness if you encounter a rushed morning for work or school. Throw on a simple, yet effective, coat and be on your way to tackle the day. Here are some places where you can find the best options for winter coats this upcoming season:
